    I have joined BES 123: Teaching and Learning course as a part of pre PhD course work. I am finding the course very informative and useful as it is giving clear understanding of various concepts of learning theories, strategies, methods etc. The explanations done by Dr. Gaurav Singh and other dignitaries through videos, the texts provided, various links to explore more about the related topics are very useful.
    The quizzes which are given at every week make us read or listen each and every topic carefully so that we can attempt the questions successfully.
